Defining the role of the community health worker within a federal healthy start care coordination team.
The Strong Beginnings program worked to define community health worker (CHW) interventions, a core service of the program to improve maternal and child health. The workgroup identified seven core functions and 28 maternal and child health risk topics to be addressed by the CHW. The process resulted in a detailed document of program interventions that the CHWs use to guide care.

Preconception health promotion among Maryland women.
The objective of this study was to identify factors associated with receipt of preconception care (PCC) health promotion counseling among Maryland women and to assess whether prior birth outcome affects receipt of counseling. PCC receipt in the sample, consistent with analyses of older data, was low at 33 percent for all women and 28 percent for women with a prior live birth.
